Make sure you’re properly protected when you hit the road!
You’ve decided to go on a short road trip… what a great idea! Whether you’re going solo, as a couple or with family, discovering the most beautiful parts of Quebec, Ontario or even the East Coast at your own pace can be a marvellous experience.
Here’s the hitch: you’re not used to packing light! What’s more, you need to squeeze in bikes and more, but your car just isn’t big enough! So, you get yourself a roof box and bike rack and you’re ready to roll. Is your insurance coverage sufficient for this kind of trip?”
Here are a few things to consider before leaving…
- Luggage transported inside your vehicle or in a roof box is covered if stolen, subject to certain conditions set out in your home insurance contract.
- If stolen, bikes kept on an exterior rack are also generally covered by your home insurance.
- If a kayak or other object attached to the roof of your car comes loose, hits another vehicle and causes an accident, your car insurance covers your civil liability.
